That is one of the key takeaways from a recent survey of 835 executives from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). The survey shows 84% see the use of AI as "essential" to competitiveness, and half see the technology as "transformative." But for now, it's still only in widespread use among a handful of practitioners -- eight percent of executives use AI mainly as a workhorse for IT departments, mainly to detect security intrusions, user issues and deliver automation. Looking into the near future, everyone expects a lot out of AI. At least 32% of executives believe that by 2020, AI will be helping to guide their sales, marketing or customer service functions.

The biggest adopters of AI today are, not surprisingly, IT departments, with 67% of survey respondents using AI to detect security intrusions, user issues and deliver automation. However, by 2020, 32% of companies believe AI's greatest impact will be in sales, marketing or customer service, while 20% see AI's impact being largest in non-customer facing corporate functions, including finance, strategic planning, corporate development, and HR.
